Best experience I have every had regarding health and weight management. Waited a month to see if the amazing results were sustainable before I posted a review.. I can say YES. My doctors here at the Cleveland Clinic were floored with my results. I have not gone back on my BP med

The side effects of statin medication (for me leg cramps) was too much for me to bear so I stopped taking them after 20 years, 4 months prior to attending Pritikin. It apparently takes that long to get them out of your system.

Is this more for couples or would a person coming by themself feel comfortable here?
MANY people come by themselves. At mealtimes there are two big tables that many of the single participants sit on. It is absolutely one of the easiest places to go by yourself. Also very easy to make new friends.

What options are at extra cost? The cooking classes? The "Night Out"? drinks?
They don't offer any alcohol, they discourage it. Cooking classes are offered daily, included. They have a lot of services as extras, I took a session on bio-mechanic that was very helpful. Look at the website for extra. I when out two nights, one how to learn how to shop at the market and one night to a restaurant to learn how to order food. It's a life style change at Pritikin.

Smoking cessation, reviews are nonexistent-- does anyone have specific experience????
most methods have similar success rates, but stopping really depends on a person's individual willingness to stop. if you are not ready, nothing will work. Pritikin does not really deal with smoking, although they mention it's bad effects. Their concern is strictly diet & exercise.

Anything you wish you would have brought with you? Or, anything extra you needed? Also, if you only knew........ Please do not respond if you are staff. Thanks!
Hello - I hope you enjoy your trip. There are times when you may be sitting around the spa building, waiting for a class to start, or have an hour between meetings or sessions -- and you don't want to go back to the hotel - and evening activities end early --- I always kept some reading material with me and had something in the hotel room for evenings. Pritikin will give you a nice canvas bag -- I tended to pack it in the morning and take it with me at breakfast so I didn't have to return to the hotel if I didn't want to. I would put in lighter shoes (flip flops or sandals, in case I didn't want to keep on gym shoes all day) and maybe a change of shirt or pants (although it's fine to stay in your workout pants if they are comfortable). I did usually go back to the hotel before dinner, after my last class or workout, and shower/change for dinner. it's a wonderful place -

Hi Karen, when is the best time to book spa appointments?
Although the schedule at Pritikin is pretty full, Sunday is a great day to get a spa treatment. Any day between 3:15-4:15pm is also a good time. Pritikin offers fun optional activities including Cooking School and Aquatics at that time on a daily basis, but no lectures. You can always take advantage of the electives during the rest of your stay!
